The first test of Orisa’s fashion show would still be held in Hao Jue Hotel.
After getting up early in the morning, Su Bei requested a taxi through the app. Once ready, she checked how she looked in the mirror and grabbed her handbag before heading out.
With some light makeup, she wore a vintage-style cheongsam, showing the elegance and beauty of women in S Country.
As she stepped outside, she saw a car and made her way towards it.
The Bentley approached her slowly, stopping next to her.
How did she manage to get a Bentley to pick her up? She was indeed lucky!
However, as the car window was rolled down, Lu Heting’s extraordinarily handsome side face came to sight.
In a low and husky voice, he said, “Get in the car.”
His words were short yet domineering.
“It’s you?” Su Bei’s eyes flashed with astonishment as her cheeks blushed slightly.
“Why are you surprised? Didn’t you repeatedly ask me to contact you?” Although Lu Heting had no good reason to do it, there he was.
After adding her number to his phone, he entered the internal system of the taxi app and changed her information so that she would only be able to request his car.
For that to work, he had specially registered an account on several taxi application platforms.
“Yes, I asked you to contact me, but not to be my ride.”
“What a coincidence! You just requested my car.”
With no other choice, Su Bei got in the car at once, or she would be late for the test.
Turning her head to look at him, she asked curiously, “Aren’t you supposed to drive for Mr. Weijian?”
Lu Heting knew she was referring to Lu Weijian.
Apparently, she had really mistaken him for a driver years ago.
“I have time,” Lu Heting answered calmly.
Su Bei nodded slightly and then looked at him again. “Mr. Lu, does your company allow you to use their cars to drive others? I mean, is it okay for you to make extra money by turning Mr. Weijian’s car into a taxi?”
“He agreed to it.”
As if Lu Weijian would dare to disagree with him.
“Then your company offers you great benefits. Mr. Weijian seems really nice.” Su Bei sighed casually.
As he heard her praising Lu Weijian, Lu Heting pursed his thin lips. “I’m one of his distant relatives, but he treats me like a brother.”
Then Su Bei fell silent. She couldn’t help thinking about the test and how it would go.
After a while, Lu Heting spoke again, “Miss Su, where have you been in the past five years?”
Last night, it was the first time he looked for information about her, but to his surprise, he didn’t find anything about her whereabouts in the past five years. All he could get was her story before she disappeared.
As the precious daughter of the head of Su family, she had been forced to leave home by her stepmother and sister, and for five years, no one heard of her.
“In the United States. Actually, I just came back.” Su Bei didn’t see the reason to hide this from him.
Clenching his hands around the steering wheel, Lu Heting’s slender fingers slightly began to turn pale. When she had decided to send him the divorce agreement at the time, she had done it through someone else for fear that he would find out where she had been living.
“Miss Su, how long do you plan to stay this time?”
“I guess about a year.”
A year? Lu Heting frowned, awfully aware that he didn’t have much time with her.
“And after a year, are you going to leave again?”
Su Bei pursed her red lips. She had thought a lot about what would happen after a year was gone. After all, her plan was to find a person to take care of Da Bao when the time came.
Noticing the faint smile on her face as she remained silent, Lu Heting didn’t make any more questions. Instead, he looked ahead steadily.
